Tryout and Evaluation Information

Tryout Registration Process

Register Online. Please register online before 7:00pm Friday, April 27 if you wish to tryout for a Baltimore Stars travel team. It helps us be prepared. Thanks.

General Tryout Guidelines

  • It is in the player’s best interest to attend all of the tryout sessions to ensure the independent evaluators get the most accurate assessment of each player.
  • If you have a schedule conflict, please register anyway and advise our Hockey Director, Boe Leslie
  • A player's prior experience, level and/or club affiliation are not a guarantee that a spot will be held. Likewise, payment of the full season fee in advance of tryouts is not a guarantee that a spot will be held.
  • In efforts to field the most competitive teams possible, a full roster may not be selected immediately and supplemental tryouts may be held to determine final placements. 
  • Full equipment is required including mouthguards.
  • Tryout jerseys will be supplied.

Players not selected to a team will be contacted by the Hockey Director or a member of his tryout staff.

Please DO NOT contact the Hockey Director or members of the Board of Directors about player team placements for at least 24 hours following the posting of rosters. 

In efforts to field the most competitive teams possible in some cases a full roster may not be selected immediately.

Team Registration

Once the rosters have been posted, families will have 48 hours to DECLINE an offered roster position.

Financial Aid Scholarship Program

Ice Hockey is an expensive game and is often not easily afforded by everyone. As a result, a financial aid scholarship program has been established. Apply now. 

The Registration "Travel Program" is not currently available.

Uniform Information (Jerseys / Shells / Warm-Ups)

There will be one opportunity after tryouts to order uniforms and receive them in time for the season start. Uniforms ordered after the deadline will incur a $30 service fee and a delivery date cannot be guaranteed. 

 

Travel Uniform Order Deadline: July 1

 

All other Travel and Rec teams will receive a set of new socks at the beginning of the season. If they are lost or need to be replaced, they can be purchased through the online store or through our equipment partner East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies (formerly For Sports) at the Gardens Ice House at Laurel. 
 

Girls Program jersey and sock orders will be coordinated through Joanna Nagle and Sean Baker (not through East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies)

East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies Official Team Gear

East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies (formerly For Sports) is the exclusive supplier of the Baltimore Youth Hockey Club's Official Team Gear. Jerseys, shells, warm-ups, replacement socks and select other gear and equipment will be available for purchase through our online store.

Having official gear manufactured by anyone other than our sanctioned vendors will be considered a violation of club rules.

East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies Partnership Discount Program

As part of our partnership with East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies at the Gardens Ice House at Laurel and Rockville as our Official Team Gear Supplier, they have offered us the following discounts for your other equipment needs.

  • Closeout and clearance items will be discounted at a special rate, exclusive to the Baltimore Stars.
  • Prices on all new items in the store will be reduced to a special price.
  • As a bonus for allowing East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies to be the supplier for your team gear, we are taking an additional 10% off all protective equipment. This includes shin guards, shoulder pads, elbow pads, pants, and gloves.
  • Additionally, we will be taking 10% off all new current year sticks. Clearance sticks are at a 20% discount.
  • Finally, members of the Baltimore Stars who purchase skates will receive 10% of the skate’s value in sharpening credit.

For more information please review the below document.

Player Number Policy

All Jersey number requests are reviewed and approved by the BYHC Registrar. Jersey numbers stay with players as long as they are in their program. Recreational and Travel programs are treated separately because the uniforms are different. Numbers will be re-assigned after a player has left their program for more than one season. In cases where a player is playing outside of their age bracket numbers cannot always be guaranteed.

Player number requests are entered during player registration. Since the club Registrar tracks player numbers, there is no option to enter numbers on the vendor's website when purchasing jerseys. Before the vendor manufactures the ordered uniforms and gear the Registrar reviews player numbers for accuracy. We do not advise players of their assigned number.
